I'm Kendall King, the 6th grade teacher here at Highmore-Harrold Elementary.
I'm a 2006 graduate of Highmore High School and a 2011 graduate of Black Hills State University, where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Science: Elementary Education and Special Education. The 2020-2021 school year marks the tenth year of my teaching career. My duties include teaching math and science to both 5th and 6th grades.
My husband, Chip and I, and our sons, Charles Robert (4) and Henry Morse (1), live here in Highmore. We enjoy spending our free time camping, fishing, hunting, cooking, and spending time with our family and friends. Watching our boys grow and learn every day brings us the greatest joy!
In our classroom, we focus on hard work, responsibility, and accountability. Students are expected to show up to school on time and prepared to put in a full day's work. I do not assign homework unless a daily assignment doesn't get completed in the amount of time that's been allowed in class. If an assignment does go home, it is to be completed and handed in by the time we start that subject the next day in class. I believe that when my students go home, their time needs to be spent doing things with their families that I can't teach them in school.
Please feel free to contact me any time. Email is best and I can be reached at my school email. firstname.lastname@example.org
